Loved my stay here. There's a lovely lounge with a kitchen and babu the host will make you drinks or basic good for a small charge. Great for meeting other travelers. Rooms are basic but clean and nice and excellent for price.

Babu was very kind and helpfull, showing us around fort kochi in his auto riksja and recommending the right places to eat or food shopping. The kitchen of Tantraa is well equiped so you can even try to cook your own meal. The stay in the airco room was confortable and I had some good sleep. Recommended to give it...

Had a great time in Kochin especially thanks to Babu, the host of Tantraa Home Stay. He showed us around Fort Kochin with his riskha, went with us to the fresh seafood market and taught us a nice Kerala recipe to cook the prawns. Big recommendation to stay here!

After an awful stay experience in Kollam , Tantraa homestay was a blessing in disguise. We got to Kochi at 12am, and the guy paid for our rickshaw ride(as the rickshaw guy didn't have change money for big notes on him) and didnt make us fill any forms etc for verification (understanding it was late and we were really tired)....

We had an amazing stay at Tantra hostel. Babu is amazing, so helpful and fun. The kitchen is well equipped and it was lovely to be able to cook and eat all together - there's a real family feel. The hostel was spotless, and the food was really yummy and reasonable. Good Luck Babu, hope we can come back soon!

Very good value. The rooms are nice, though downstairs ones are better as the noise from upstairs carries. The food they do is very tasty. Babu who works there is incredibly helpful and kind. He gives great advice and rides for good value in his TukTuk. In walking distance to the sea and shops and restaurants. Very clean. Would recommend.
